There are various amounts of air ducts that run throughout your home, including the air conditioning vents in each room and the dryer vent in the laundry room. Dust accumulates and settles in almost every area of your home and every/any room that has a vent, will have dust. In order to keep your home dust free, clean and of healthy air quality, make sure to have your air ducts cleaned and maintained at least once a year.
When air enters your home through your central air conditioning system it goes through a filter first. As efficient and important these filters are for your air quality, if the particles are smaller than the lining in the filter, they will have nowhere else to go except inside your home. These types of particles include dust, oil, dander and dead skin that can compromise your air system over time. Air duct cleaning is the smartest and easiest solution to reduce a dusty home.
Some home-owners may be concerned when it comes to having their air and dryer vents cleaned. Do not worry however, because it is a key feature in making sure your home is healthy and safe. It is also very important because your dryer vent can become dusty, clogged and a fire hazard. Every home-owner should be resilient about making sure they schedule and follow through with their professional cleaning appointments so that your home remains safe. It is ideal to have your dryer and air vents cleaned once or twice a year for optimum efficiency. If you think about it, you are constantly using your air and heat system as well as your dryer; if you continue to have your ducts cleaned regularly you will notice a fresher and cleaner home.
Another great reason to have your vents cleaned thoroughly is to help with allergies and upper respiratory health. Seasonal and as well as chronic allergies affect millions of Americans every year. When pollen fills the air during spring and fall (or year round here in Central Florida), they also fill your home through the vent’s ducts. It does not matter how great your air filters are, particles still are able to enter your home and affect your breathing. When a professional is given the chance to clean your ducts, they are able to remove plenty of allergens for the air. This provides relief of allergy & even asthma symptoms, by providing a clean atmosphere for your sinuses and lungs.
